Dozens of community members came out to help recognize the opening of
the Thomas Cutinella Memorial Field Concession with a recent
ribbon-cutting ceremony. Thirty-eight community members and business
organizations who helped see the project from its initial development
phase through fruition were honored with an individual plaque as well as
their names engraved on a plaque affixed to the side of the building.
Landscapers, masons, architects, painters, electricians, plumbers,
utility professionals, staff members, Wildcat Athletic Club supporters,
current and former Board of Education trustees and others were
recognized for their time, materials and service that helped make the
facility a reality.
In addition to being a well-stocked concession for athletic events,
students in SWR High School’s Life Skills program will have the
opportunity to take part in work experiences at the concession.
Supervised by certified special education staff and supported by the
district’s food service staff, the students will learn valuable skills
including using the register to process sales, setting up and cleaning
up the concession before and after events and assisting food service
staff in the preparation and service of food items as permitted by
Frank and Kelli Cutinella, parents of Thomas, were grateful for the many
people who embraced the project and helped to not only symbolize the
true spirit of community, but to help to keep the legacy of Thomas
